I have a problem with my recently acquired 73 XJ6. There is an excessive amount of play in the steering. It is most noticeable when on an open road at moderate speed. The amount of rotation of the steering wheel needed to move left or right is excessive.
I have a front end from a parts car that I used to have. By the front end, I mean the front suspension cross member and stub axle carrier. It weighs a ton and I would like to dispose of it to make more room in my garage.
What is the likely worn part or parts that are allowing the loose front end to happen? The donor car had only 45,000 miles so I assume that parts may be usable for this repair.
Are there any other parts worth keeping from this front end?
